09/04/12 – Kelley Vlahos – The Scott Horton Show

by | Sep 4, 2012 | Interviews | 4 comments

Kelley Vlahos, contributing editor at The American Conservative, discusses the rise and fall of the COINdinistas (Lt. Col John Nagl especially); how “surge” strategies are designed for domestic political concerns, not military successes; the brutal civilian-slaughtering nature of real counterinsurgency campaigns; the revolving door between think tanks and government; the ongoing debacle in Afghanistan; and the perseverance of military apologists who still can’t imagine criticizing anyone in a government uniform.
